AGATHA AWARD NOMINATED SERIES "O'Brien has written one of the most warm-hearted yet realistic cozies I've ever had the pleasure of reading." - Mystery Scene Magazine (on Finding Sky) "This breezy second outing (after the Agatha Award-nominated Finding Sky) features an enchanting amateur sleuth with dear friends and family who have her back at all times. If only she can make this PI business work and keep her relationship with Dean on an even keel, her life will be perfect." - Library Journal "O'Brien combines humor, wit, wisdom, and suspense in a captivating story involving a rookie PI struggling to balance the demands of crime solving and single motherhood.

Five stars plus " - Tracy Weber, Author of the Award-Winning Downward Dog Mystery Series "I love this series. Even though this is just the second book, I feel like I am hooked for the long haul.

Nicki Valentine rarely gets time off, so attending a wedding with her superhot colleague Dean sounds dreamy. But things turn nightmarish when the groom-a soon-to-be transplant donor-disappears, and Nicki and Dean commit to a partnership they never planned. Together, they examine the groom's unfulfilled promises, including one to his mom, a psychic medium with an unusual health need. As family secrets emerge, Nicki must face questions about her late husband, whose long-ago betrayal still threatens to cloud her judgment. With support from her pole-dancing best friend, her always-on-call family, and the loves of her life (her two kids-and possibly Dean), Nicki must uncover the groom's demons while conquering her own. Related subjects include: women sleuths, private investigators, cozy mysteries, murder mysteries, humorous murder mysteries, book club recommendations, whodunit mysteries (whodunnit).
